Wiz ‘N’ Liz was developed by Raising Hell Software for the Amiga and Sega Megadrive only and was first published by Psygnosis in 1993. It is a side-scrolling collecting game with cute graphics and jolly music and can be played one or two-player.
The aim of the game is to collect “wabbits” against a strict time limit. To complete a level you must collect floating letters that appear after a wabbit has been collected, to spell out a word at the top of the screen.
At the end of each stage you then mix collected fruits in a cauldron and this usually results in either a bonus minigame, bonus points, weird graphical effects, or some other such silliness. There’s even a “joke” Game Over sequence if you mix the right fruit! 😀
Other than the occasional boss battle, Wiz ‘N’ Liz is unique in that the game doesn’t feature what you might call “enemies”. The challenge comes from beating the clock, and extending it if possible, to get as many bonus points as you can.
Wiz ‘N’ Liz also features a very nice split screen two-player mode. Which takes an already decent game and enhances it exponentially.
It’s not particular well-known, but it is definitely still worth playing now. Wiz ‘N’ Liz is a hidden gem on the Sega Megadrive/Genesis.
